Meet Google Pixel Stand

Meet Google Pixel Stand

If we've learned anything from 2018, it's that Google is really bad at keeping secrets.

The internet giant made the announcement at its Made by Google 2018 event in NY. There is talk about a Chrome OS powered tablet, called the Pixel Slate. We'll know for sure when it starts shipping on October 22, priced at a highly-competitive $149.

Having Assistant remind you about your schedule is nice at home, but maybe you'd prefer not to have all that info popping up when powering the phone on a generic Qi charger in a public space. On top of those locations, Google is expected to concurrently unveil the next-generation Pixel devices at other media events across the world. Unlike those speakers, the Hub has a display to show you useful information. You can ask questions and trigger IoT Routines, like controlling your smart lights or thermostat; weather forecasts and recipes look great on the screen, too. It can also bring up contextual info like commute times.

Google's new smart speaker, which has a display to show visual responses to voice commands, mostly matches offerings from Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) and Facebook Inc (FB.O).

AI, embodied in Google's talking Assistant, also promises to be more of a sidekick in the Pixel 3. With Google Photos integration, the Home Hub can display existing albums or have Google curate an album for you. There's also a new "Home View" UI that gives a quick overview of your smart home hardware.

Chrome OS feels a bit more at home on a tablet than before, but it doesn't feel as good as iOS or Android.
Here we were, expecting to learn about the latest updates to the Pixelbook, and Google throws a curveball and debuts the Pixel Slate, a 12-inch tablet. It also has dedicated 8MP front and rear-facing cameras. The Pixel 3 just has a USB-C port. At the other end of the spectrum is the Core i7 version with 16GB of RAM and 256GB SSD - that's $1,599/£1,549.

Juventus coach Allegri: Ronaldo is fine
But on Friday over five percent was wiped off the value of their shares in morning trading on the Milan stock exchange. However, the Italian club's reaction to the issue has angered some fans as "dismissive" and "insensitive".

At the time of this writing, the unlocked "Kinda Blue" Pixel 2 is listed as out of stock, with "Just Black" and "Clearly White" units merely available in 64GB storage configurations.

The folio back flap pulls double duty as a cover and a stand, allowing you to use the Slate at nearly any angle.

The two smartphones have also been listed on JD.com along with the prices. The base mode Celeron starts at $599.

If there was one thing that came out of Google's hardware launch today, it was that the internet goliath is willing to pay a lot of money to others in order to push into the market. There were rumors of a secret third phone, but of course, that was nonsense.

On the front side, both phones have bigger displays - the Pixel 3 now has an 18:9 screen but maintains a similar size to its predecessor while the XL grows its display by 0.3-inches and includes a notch. On the storage front, the smartphone comes in either 64GB or 128GB capacities without a support for microSD card. "One of the most exciting stories we have this year is how much machine learning and AI we put into the product", Seang Chau, vice president of Pixel software, told Fast Company. A real-time transcript of the conversation will display on your screen. The 2160 x 1080 OLED panel has HDR support, and the battery clocks in at 2,915mAh. The feature will also be coming to existing Pixel phones.

The Pixel 3 has a 2915mAh battery and the Pixel 3 XL has a 3450mAh battery. Another stellar feature is Google's Super Res Zoom where the Pixel 3 snaps a load of photos and runs them through an algorithm to improve zoomed shots. These phones are more expensive than last year's Pixels. During a call, the stationary camera will track you, slowly panning and zooming to keep you in frame as you walk around your living room or kitchen, chopping vegetables or digging in the sofa for the lost remote. This device will wirelessly charge your Pixel phone while also standing it upright, making it easy for you to see your incoming notifications while your phone is charging up.
